While shopping for the groceries there are certain items on my list which I think I never get tired of picking up as soon as I see them on a discounted price.One such item is the berries -especially strawberry .As soon as I see theses ruby red colour beauties I feel they are calling my name and saying 'pick me up '.These were  2 ,500 gms pack of strawberries for Qr 6,who would say no to such a good offer? at least a strawberry lover(me) can't.

After relishing upon them as much as possible in every form, from strawberry milk shake to yogurt ,mousse.There was a pack left unattended which caught my attention while the regular fridge cleaning program .What do you do when a packet of  frozen strawberries lying in the freezer threatens to expire?There is no better way than storing it as a coulis.Coulis is a technique of preserving fruits cooked with sugar in pureed form .Here sugar acts as a preservative and prevents it from going stale .Here's how the strawberry coulis came into being...........
